Would it still work on a aftermarket ECU?

IE apexi GEMS?

Also would a CEL Fix work as well?

If you have an aftermarket ECU it will be mapped to the car. So if you have taken out sensors etc the ECU would be mapped accordingly.

As for could you read error codes as you do now with a OE ECU. No I would not think so....

Sorry but question was a bit vague
All the best

I mean like diagnostics fault codes.

The sort of things on a standard ECU.

It all depends on the ecu Batfink, but the fault codes wont show up/use the engine check light like the standard ecu does.

You will have to have a software package or a hand held device (like the Apexi FC Commander) to diagnose any problems that arise.
